That we think you’ll like! As we’ve no doubt mentioned before, Kernow is best for weather – but eventually there comes a time (as October wears on, perhaps) when knitwear and wellies may be more appropriate than shorts and flip-flops. So…

Start Wearing Knitwear

There’s something nice about wrapping up and enjoying the autumn chill, while knowing all the while that it’s not going to be properly cold (but still perhaps chilly enough to feel good about an open fire or a pie and a pint)…

Absorb Some History

Cornwall isn’t short of history of course, but the number of museums here is bordering on the ridiculous! Reckon I could pass a month or so just visiting Cornish museums! We have museums of everything, from art to aviation, and jail to witchcraft… Follow this link for a (fairly) comprehensive list : http://bit.ly/1xtxHw2

Consider Mining

Underground is pretty much the same temperature all the time, for reasons that are only understood by people who listened at school. Cornwall’s rich mining heritage has mostly come to an end now, but many of the mines are still open to the public, and you can look around them, guided by a man with a light on his hat or something of that nature. In fact in many of them you don’t actually have to go underground. Here are a few we like… They’re mostly in west Cornwall. For cottages quite central to the area, click here…

Fishing boat in harbour

Try Boating

When it isn’t summer, it starts to make more sense to be in a boat than in the actual water. Why not try your hand at fishing? There are a multitude of charter boats fishing everything from mackerel to shark. Or if coarse or game fishing is more your cup of tea, Cornwall has many managed inland fishing lakes and rivers to choose from, as well of course as beach fishing for the experienced caster.

Gaze Into Mist

Keats called autumn the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”, and it would be rather conceited to think that we can describe it better than he! Perhaps it’s not the best season for trekking on the high moorland, but it’s certainly a very attractive one for harbours, smuggler’s coves, and perhaps just chilling on the patio drinking tea, or appreciating the amazing qualities of the light?
